I use Firefox, Netscape and IE but my favorite is Firefox. Recently I got back into playing spades on MSN and I have to make sure I'm using IE to do it and I can't for the life of me figure out why. I'm not the most computer literate person around so I was wondering if anyone here had any ideas. Am I doing something wrong when I try to use Firefox or Netscape? Are there changes I have to make if I want to use them? HELP!!!!

I have found, ctry, that some game sites do not support the Firefox browser. They only support IE. In the case of Big Fish Games(which I relly like), they ask you to use IE if you want to collect your tokens. You can, however play the games using Firefox -you just won't receive token credits. There are others on which you cannot even play the games using anything but IE. I had to leave a site because they wanted me to use IE, and I have way too much trouble using it.

To me IE is outdated and everyone including myself prefers FF or Netscape. I think they should make some changes don't you? lol...

The problem is you are playing on MSN Games which is owned by Microsoft which is why you can not use FF or Netscape. There is no way around it, believe me I have tried. Have you tried playing the game somewhere else, like Pogo or on Yahoo games?

lol...now I feel so dumb! Yes, a long time ago I tried playing on Yahoo and to be honest with you the people there left something to be desired and seem very cliquey. I never tried to play spades on Pogo but will check that one out...thanks for the idea.
